The holiday season made it tough to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The delicious (but often unhealthy) meals and treats, along with fun (but tiring) social gatherings and events. All the hustle and bustle left us with little time for taking care of ourselves.
The new year is the perfect time to refocus and reset a healthier routine. HealthSelectSM medical benefits provide resources that can help you get back—or stay—on track with health and well-being.
NOTE: The following benefits are available to participants of the HealthSelect plans administered by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX).
Nix your bad health habits
If you’re struggling to kick a bad habit, consider enrolling in a Well onTarget® self-management program. Programs can help you quit smoking, improve your sleep, reduce stress and get your finances in order. If you need one-on-one help, sign up with a coach who can help you reach your goal. Well onTarget is available to HealthSelect participants at no additional cost. Learn more about Well onTarget.
Get back to a healthy weight
Holiday meals and treats can take a toll on our waistlines. Get back to a healthy eating routine with help from the experts. Your HealthSelect medical benefits include access to two online weight management programs. If you meet eligibility requirements, you can enroll in WondrTM or Real Appeal® at no cost to you. You can choose either program but can only participate in one program at a time. Learn more about weight management programs.
Start a regular fitness routine
While you might feel like you’re constantly on the run, the holidays can equal a less active lifestyle. Coupled with extra food, our bodies can be crying out for some movement. Activities like yoga, walking, swimming and stretching can help you keep the weight off and give you more energy.
As a HealthSelect medical plan participant, you have access to the Fitness Program. For a one-time $19 (plus tax) enrollment fee, you can then choose from five no-contract membership options to fit your budget. In addition to a nationwide network of fitness facilities, you have access to a variety of online, digital fitness classes. You can also enroll in the digital-only option for just $10 per month with no enrollment fee.
|Gym Facility Network Size||Digital Access Only||3,000||7,500||12,000||12, 400|
